I'm Florence, a young and enthusiastic English teacher working in Cardiff, UK.
I believe that education is the most important and most powerful tool in the world and that there are many ways of learning. None of my lessons are the same. Every lesson is different for every student and every level. What they all share though, is their relaxed and communicative content and the aim to engage with your interests, strengthen your weaknesses and help you achieve your goals.
More than anything I am focused on sharing knowledge and skills with people from all over the world and from all walks of life.
I graduated from Falmouth University in 2015 with a First Class BA (Hons) in English and an accredited 150hr TEFL qualification.
I have lived and worked as an EFL teacher in the UK, Vietnam, Spain, France and Italy. I have taught a variety of ages (from infants to mature students) in private English schools, state schools and as a private tutor. I have taught classes for all levels, from complete beginners to advanced in one-on-one sessions as well as in classes of up to forty-seven.

I think Florence is a super duper lady. She aced her undergraduate in English Literature, and was even awarded a scholarship to go to Japan and do research for her dissertation which was also ace. She's very compassionate and loving person who cares deeply about others needs. As a teacher in Vietnam she was quickly able to intuit and devise ways of tailoring her lessons to suit the needs and interests of her students. She received impressive feedback from the headteacher at her language centre in Vietnam, and always had a good rapport with her students. I deeply value her as a life companion and friend and have absolute trust and confidence in her.
